Here Are Your Additions to the Guardians List of 100 Greatest Novels

Remember when the Guardian was taking suggestions from readers to amend their list of 100 greatest novels? Well, they’re back with an update – and your voice has been heard.

To bring you back up to speed: the Guardian’s list of 100 greatest novels in English met with some controversy when it was first released. Their creative solution was to poll their readership and have them suggest books that should have been included. We reported all of this last month right here at the Reading Room.

Now, the Guardian has released a full list of every book that received at least two votes from readers. Check out the complete list below:
